Few elements from the Sterls’ original kitchen remain, since this room was subject to major alterations in subsequent years. Helene Sterl’s cupboard can still be seen and is crowned by three storage jars, created specifically for her in 1901 at the historic Wittgenborn pottery. Robert Sterl adopted the Hessian town of Wittgenborn (part of the city of Wächtersbach) as a second home beginning in 1893, a residence he only gave up many years later after becoming a professor at Dresden’s Academy of Art. Today it is where our guests are greeted, questions answered and books and postcards can be purchased. Please come for a visit!
